Amidst a land of hypnotic beats, catchy hooks, and majestic melodies exists the music of D.V.S* (aka Derek VanScoten). His 2013 release “Hit the Clouds Running” was the apex of his career to date, marrying forward thinking electronic bass, drums and sound design, with classy guitar tones and vocalists.

In 2009, the guitarist/ producer began releasing solo material and touring nationally. By 2012, D.V.S* had remixed Break Science and Talib Kweli, was featured on the Emancipator “Remixes” album, and had co-produced 2 tracks on Michal Menert’s album “Even If It Isn’t Right.” In 2013 his remix of The Beatles’ “Because” broke the top 5 on Hype Machine, and finally gained the producer international attention.

As a diverse performer, D.V.S* has spent considerable time on the road with electronic acts Big Gigantic, Beats Antique, Emancipator, Tycho, Cherub, EOTO, Lotus, Tipper, and Pantyraid. As a respected instrumentalist, he has played with a colorful variety of groups including the Boulder Philharmonic, DJ Logic, the Motet, and Devotchka.
